Product Update: Enhancements to Surge Protection Adder Options


After evaluating surge protection options for Franklin Electric Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), the size of the surge protectors has been increased to allow for corner-grounded delta, as well as other 3-phase supplies. This change will prevent incorrectly sizing a surge protection adder, which could result in nuisance tripping and surge protector damage. The options will now allow the following maximum voltage before surge protection is provided:

Smartstart Pump Starters

Smartstart Pump Starters (1)

SubMonitor ConnectTM Starters

Submonitor Connect Starters

P-Series VFDs

Pseries Vfds

*NOTE: There is currently no surge protection option for corner-grounded delta 575-600 VAC systems.
